    Gotta say, just installed this thing and it rocks! No more seatbelt chime. It fits my 2012 Taco perfectly and can be left in without hindering buckling up. I sometimes drive around the mall parking lot from gas station to store and don't wish to buckle up on that short stint across the lot at lot speeds and I also often have stuff in the passenger seat setting off the chime as well going down the road.

    For guys wanting to "bake" or cure your BHLMs after painting.. here's a tip.

    Take some cardboard (or plywood if you have it handy) and make a simple A frame box, like a tent. Leave one side open, and use a hair dryer in the open side and let it run for about 2 hours.

    They make a fantastic heat element for paint curing, pretty much a gentle 120 degrees.

    I was looking at this idea months ago. I don't recall seeing this one though. I may have to give this a try.

    Very cool. I just let go of my 2010 JK but while I had it I did the same think on it. It made a HUGE difference when muddling and sliding around on and in fun places. I'm gunna do this on Red ASAP.

    No problem. I got the link from someone on here myself.

    I just received the second one for the passenger side. Seems quality. Fools the truck into thinking the seatbelt is buckled all the time. Love it.

    This that and the other thing.
    Bought a USB charger that was suppose to fit in the blank switch banks of the centre dash of Tacoma from 05-11. I have an 09 and go figure, it would only fit on the left side blanks, so I modified the switch and installed it in my centre console instead. Switch was bought on Amazon for about 20$. if you have an aftermarket stereo with rear usb u can buy the same switch but one half us charging the other is usb aux. made by mictuning.

    I painted the door sills and kick panels today. I used rustolium truck bed liner in the spray can for the sills. I used rustolium plastic paint for the kick panels. They both turned out bitchen IMO.

    I installed the Scan Gauge II today, cost me about $160. Honestly for a plug a play toy this thing is rad. With help from other posts I programmed it to give me my trans temp. So now I get rpm, trans temp, mpg, and mph. I'm gonna change my mph to something more useful in the future. If you guys are thinking about picking one up i would suggest it

    Same idea here, but thought it might be cool to have something inside on the floorboards too....
